As far as drugstore mascaras go, this one is pretty much top of my love list, despite having a number of affairs with it’s competitors. I really like Max Factor products however I did overlook them for a while thinking they weren’t very current or aimed at young people. They’ve recently brought out a plethora of newbies which have changed my mind, and it’s pretty evident that they’re trying to reach out to a younger market.
Anyway, this mascara comes in sleek matte black packaging (I love matte packaging, it’s so chic) with the trademark gold label. I’m 99% sure there’s a waterproof offering too but I pick up the original formula in the shade black. The wand comprises plastic bristles, something which I usually steer way clear of, however there are plenty meaning that you have no trouble gripping the lashes and giving them a thorough coat.
You do have to apply a fair bit of this to achieve the look in the pictures above, however I always do apply a lot of mascara anyway to ensure my lashes are full and long. This mascara does give it’s suggested false lash effect look, and I think the lashes look exceptionally fluttery.
Have you tried this?
